Hello. I got a new laptop computer Friday afternoon. Everything on it runs beautifully, but I am getting one random problem. When I'm using the laptop, sometimes the Window's task bar and desktop become unresponsive. No error messages pop up. However, I am not able to click anything. I cannot click the Window's start button in the bottom left corner. I cannot click desktop shortcuts. I cannot press alt+tab to switch to a different process. If the problem arises while I am on a Google chrome tab, I am still able to use the internet browser until I minimize it. I've never encountered a problem like this on my desktop computer. I've browsed google for solutions, but cannot find a post on the internet that fits the same criteria as my problem.
CPU: Intel i7-7700HQ @ 2.80 GHz
OS: Windows 10 64-bit (last updated Friday afternoon when I booted up my laptop for the first time)
GPU: GeForce GTX 1050
I am using a Microsoft USB mouse, but the problem arose before I plugged in the mouse for the first time.
I will be grateful if anyone can supply me with assistance. If you need me to provide any more information just let me know.
EDIT: I installed Classic Shell shortly very shortly after booting the laptop for the first time because I despise Windows 10 control panel layout. I do not have a problem with Classic Shell on my desktop, but I am unaware if it interferes with something on this laptop.
